This week's issue of Dezeen Mail leads with our coverage of the London Design Festival, including the Prism installation at the V&A museum that displays live data from around the city (above), plus all the latest news, jobs and competitions.
All this week we're featuring music by different artists as part of our Dezeen Live shows at 100% Design. We played songs by Strong Asian Mothers on yesterday's show, a band we featured on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the week, and today it's the turn of Portsmouth-based DJ Reset Robot to raise the roof at Earls Court.
This track will give you a taste of what Reset Robot is all about. Taking inspiration from the techno and tech house genres, we think it's exactly the kind of hard-hitting dance music you'd want a robot to make.
